Rated 3 out of 5 by from Just Okay We bought these for our three year old because they were the easiest kids climbing shoe REI had to put on. They have held up fine for almost 6 months of climbing in the gym 3+ days per week, but lets be real he is three so he's not really killing them. I wouldn't say this is a bad kid's shoe. But there is nothing exceptional here. It's definitely not a scaled down version of one of their many bomber adult shoe choices. It seems to me a lot of engineering was taken out of this thing to hit their price point. I would rate it as just okay, and wouldn't recommend it for a child over five or six. It is fine for anything younger (like in our case) and gets the job done.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty reasonable product. This is our six year old's second shoe. He's at climbing camp this summer and we also sometimes boulder at night (gym). He also climbs in the back yard with these shoes on. I'm telling you, they take a beating. They are comfortable on his feet, unlike his last pair. He can easily get them on and off, and he hasn't complained that the design is "babyish" which is always (apparently) a concern. Sigh. To some of the other complaints, at some point let's exhale and acknowledge this is a $40 climbing shoe; good climbing shoes are now $150-190. I wouldn't purchase these for a young, avid climber who has finished growing, I'd buy something heavier duty and more expensive.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great shoes for kids These are fantastic shoes for small kids. I have 3 kids ages 7,7, and 6. They've been using these shoes for the past 2 years. (I bought them a little big). These are not the same type of design that you would expect for an adult climber. Kids cannot, and probably should not, handle tight climbing shoes with a boomerang rand. Because of that the toe is not quite as tight and stiff as an adult climbing shoe, but that's ok. Kids are small and light enough that they don't need it. My kids paste their feet on the same tiny nubs that I use and are just fine (they only weight 50 lbs, you don't need a super stiff shoe for that). The great thing about these shoes is the ability to get them a little big and let your kids grow into them, or at least fit them for more than 6 months. The way the heel pulls in to snug the toes into the toebox is a great design. It has enabled my kids to get used to climbing in tighter shoes, without being uncomfortable. This also creates the same level of confidence that quality shoes do for me. I whole heartedly recommend these. The only reason they don't get 5 stars is that the lace system can breakdown after a while. It's both the great part of the shoe and the weakness.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Straps break Got these for my 11 year old daughter who has used them maybe 14 times at our local climbing gym The straps broke in 2 places on one shoe an the other is about to break. I still have climbing shoes from 1983 and never once broke on real rock. I am surprised REI has not pulled these out of the stores as I consider them very faulty. I am sure they will fix or replace but if ther are the same design, it will just happen again

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Maybe ok for little kids, but they fall apart I bought these for my 9 year old about a month ago. She has worn them once outside and since the beginning of September, climbed in them 2-3 times a week for 2-3 hour sessions. They now have holes in the toes. The strap also comes open on her often. They seem like they'd be find for smaller kids who aren't super serious about climbing, but once your kid is climbing on the regular, forget about it. They just aren't durable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for my kids, decent price for growing feet I picked up two pairs 6 months ago - one for my 4yo serious climber, and one for my 7yo not-so-serious climber. They were the only climbing shoes available in that size. Both kids love the shoes and haven't had any issues. They're comfortable on their feet and fit a range so that I don't have to buy new ones every month as they grow.
